— We all know that teaching is a noble profession. Teaching is encouraging and satisfying. A good teacher must be collaborative and creative in his or her classroom management. However, what it takes to be a teacher of a class of retirees and senior citizens like 84 years old? This paper presents the experiences and reflection of a teacher who trains batches of retirees and senior citizens about the fundamentals of computer and Internet. The training is one of the three free computer education at Silliman University. It is a literacy program about the basic and fundamentals of computer, windows, Internet, email, & social media. The first batch of training was launched in January 2019, and each batch of training is composed of 25 retirees and senior citizens. The training is conducted every Saturdays for three months. The reflection of the facilitator surrounds the lessons learned in terms of teaching techniques and procedures, classroom management, as well as assessment and evaluation.
